Also, in random news, Brandon Mayfield, the son of one of my high school teachers, is apparently being held as a “material witness” in the Madrid bombings case. WEIRD. Here, from Yahoo!, is a picture of the teacher, who taught art through my senior year. I never had her in class but did work with her on a few things; interestingly, she did teach my aunt in high school, and my aunt babysat for her son when he was little.
I find it a bit, hm, I suppose the word is offensive that they insist on identifying his wife as “his Egyptian-born wife” in every reference, as though, oh! obviously! she’s from Egypt and therefore, she has made him into a terrorist! Good grief.
